Video of giant chicken freaks out the Internet

By T.K. Randall

Footage of what appears to be an abnormally large chicken has gone viral after appearing on Twitter.
The clip, which was posted on Sunday morning, raised a few eyebrows on social media after Twitter user 'LifesBook_Ceo' noted how freakishly enormous the chicken in the video actually was.

It didn't take long for the footage to be shared thousands of times, with Internet users commenting in disbelief at the size of the bird and suggesting that it must be either a prank or a man in a costume.

As it turns out, the enormous bird is actually neither of those things - it is in fact a real animal known as a Brahma chicken. Females can weigh up to 14 pounds and males as much as 18 pounds.

Its eggs, which are highly prized during the wintertime, weigh upwards of 60g.

Do you remember the story about Chicken Lickin, Turkey Lurky etc warning "Look out, look out, the sky's falling down", well I guess that's because this fat chick sat on the sky!

I got rid of my guineas. They terrorize the chickens. Chickens wouldn't lay eggs. They are hard to catch too. I had to shoot them.

I actually want one of those as a pet. Too bad they're probably not allowed here.
